Kayla Ketcheson In 11th Place At Sacred Heart Fall Classic

Junior Kayla Ketcheson (St. Andrews, Manitoba) was tied for 11th place after the first day of the 2011 Sacred Heart Fall Classic. Ketcheson carded an 83 (+11) on the first day, and is nine strokes off the leader. Quinnipiac is currently in 7th place in the eight-team field.

Sacred Heart, hosting the event at Great River Golf Club in Milford, Conn., sits in first place with a 327, followed by Long Island at 330, Monmouth at 336, Boston University at 350 and Hartford with a 352 to round out the top five. Central Connecticut State finished the day at 360, followed by Quinnipiac at 386 and Holy Cross at 388.

"Kayle [Ketcheson] had a great day with her 83," head coach John O'Connor said. "She only putted 26 times through 18 holes, which is absolutely remarkable. This is a very difficult course, as we're learning, but we hope to play better tomorrow."

Jennifer Forlenza (Wayne, N.J.) finished the first day tied for 25th with a 94 (+22) while freshman Hannah Russell (Monson, Mass.) was tied for 34th with a 100. 

Quinnipiac resumes play at Great River Golf Club on Monday, Oct. 24, at 10 a.m.
